Max Ernst

Max was one of the founding fathers of surrealism and Dadaism, being part of a tight circle of artists friends such as Dali, August Macke, Jean Arp, Man Ray and long-term friend/wife Dorothea Tanning.

I love his work because his shapes are so solid – at first glance you think you are seeing reality, but upon closer inspection there is nothing but imagination and abstraction. It truly feels like a dream looking at his work.

There isn’t any official collection of his work online, but Google does a perfectly good job of acquainting you with him…
